a hidden gem located in a strip mall in suburban St Chuck! the food is outstanding. ribs are tasty, fall off the bone tender, and spiced just right. pulled pork is as it should be...tender, juicy, and not overly sauced. the portions are large. sides are above average in both taste and size. do give this small restaurant a try....

Flew into STL on the way to Columbia, and stopped here for lunch due to the solid reviews. I got the pulled pork sandwich and a side of the deep fried okra. My guest got the Hot Mess sandwich. We were both very impressed with the BBQ, because many places overdo the sauce on their pulled pork, but not here.... More

Don't have to be big and advertise to be exceptional. Woody's brisket is a favorite for my husband and I. We are BBQ fans and enjoy trying all the BBQ stops both in this area and when traveling. Woody's has become the standard we judge other places by. Is it as good as Woody's? we ask. Woody's brisket surpasses the... More

Very small family owned operation that serves great BBQ. Brisket is great as long as they have it. Pork Steak is huge and pulled pork is wonderful as well.

Big Woodys BBQ is the best in St. Louis! From the pulled pork to the beef brisket to the porksteaks. They can't be beat. Love this place.

All the meat is delicious. I usually get the beef brisket & my husband loves the Hogfire sandwich. It's not nothing fancy, but it doesn't need to be fancy. It's really, really good & tasty smoked meat. One of the best little BBQ places in St Louis.

We've been fans of Big Woody's since they opened. The food is great with generous portions at a good price. We go every chance we get.

Big Woody's BBQ is without a doubt the most flavorful and consistent BBQ I have had. The brisket is always moist, tender, and full of flavor as is. Never tough and chewy like some more "well known" joints. The chicken and pulled pork are top notch as well. Big Woody's doesn't rely on hype to bolster their product, the quality... More
